Clear Space Theatre Company presents Cole Porter’s classic 1930s musical ANYTHING GOES on weekends March 18 – April 3, 2016 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Set aboard the ocean liner SS AMERICAN, ANYTHING GOES tells the story of Reno Sweeney and her old friend Billy Crocker as they face the shipboard complications of boy-meets-girl, set to such classic Cole Porter tunes as “Friendship”, “It’s De-Lovely”, “I Get No Kick from Champagne”, and the title song “Anything Goes.”
